I am sure there were worse movies in 1960, I was guess I was just lucky to have not seen them. However, I don’t know if they could be worse than my choice for worse movie of the year 1960. College Confidential starred some fairly good actors, maybe not so big in 1960 but they later became household names, such as Steve Allen, his wife, Jayne Meadows, Elisha Cook, Jr., Mamie Van Doren, and other big names like Rocky Marciano and even Conway Twitty, yes the rock-a-billy country crooner, Conway Twitty.
Randy Sparks, Steve Allen and Conway wrote the songs in this unbelieveable film. Steve Allen stars as a college professor that is doing a sex survey. Mamie Van Doren (who at the time of filming was almost 30 years old) played one of his students…and of course she passed the survey, and maybe was even having an affair with Steve’s charecter. Townsfolk object and bring him up on charges of indecency. The film climaxes with his trial. The acting and even the music is lackluster. Is it a comedy? Is it a drama? Is it a musical? Who knows, but whatever it is, it was bad!
